As we head – fingers crossed – into another great British summer, we are planning our second series of webinars, which I hope you will fi nd appealing. I thought the first series was a great success and, from the feedback we have received, it appears those of you who joined us on those Sunday evenings agree. For those of you who didn’t join us, I hope you can in this next series. We will publish the dates in MMM, as well as via our social media channels and enewsletters and of course on  outandaboutlive.co.uk Before we finalise the topics in this second series, I’d love your thoughts on what you would like covering. Is there any aspect of motorhoming you are unsure about or want more advice on? We are looking at…

your letters

Have your say by emailing or writing to us at: mmm@warnersgroup.co.uk Top Pitch From sun to snow, but it’s good to be back Now that those of us fortunate enough to live in Wales were allowed out to play from the end of March, we decided to go to one of our favourite sites for a few days over Easter. It’s only 40 miles from our home on Anglesey to Llanrwst andthe lovely Bron Derw. The weather from Thursday until Monday was glorious (as seen in the photo, top left). Tuesday was a blizzard (top right)! Still, the heating worked fine and we had all the comforts of our home from home. It was certainly good to be back doing what we truly enjoy. Best wishes for a great summer of travelling. Norman Hutchinson Blinding job I noted with…

wide loads

All good stuff in the 10 points of Buying Advice in the April issue. Of course, it’s important to consider the outside dimensions as well, particularly if you have any fixed constraints. Tardis doesn’t build motorhomes, and I’m not sure about the reliability if it did! We were on a West Country C&MC site on a beautiful morning in July 2019 and I was chatting to the retired gent on the next pitch. He said they had ordered a new motorhome on their way to the site. He also said that they regularly used their ‘van for staying on their daughter’s drive, as her house didn’t have room for them, and he was a little worried about the size of the new one. When my wife and I set out for a…

it’s cracking up

I have a 2019 Auto-Trail Imala and, unfortunately, reversed into a holly bush on my drive. It flexed the rear valance and put a split in it. On my previous Lunar Roadstar 630 it would have probably just put a scratch on it as the side skirts and rear valance were much more substantial. On vehicles costing in excess of £50k I expected more. Also, on my last habitation service, high damp readings were found around the nearside window and floor. OK, it will be repaired under warranty, but I didn’t expect to have damp problems on a two-year-old vehicle. I am very particular about inspecting all the seals, especially on the roof. Even with a two-year-old ‘van I find some seals starting to break down and I have repaired them.…

jessie gets a makeover

Here is our 1996 Auto-Sleeper Talisman (based on a Peugeot Boxer) called Jessie We have owned her for two-and-a-half years and have done a lot of work. She is ideal for us and we love getting away when we can. I have removed all the old stripes, painting the sides grey and the front cab blue. I also got new stripes made up. Inside, we fitted new laminate to the tabletops, along with new vinyl and catches to cupboards, as well as bespoke carpets. The 2.5-litre diesel engine was underpowered, so I found a 2.8TD van on eBay and swapped all the mechanics, loom and tank along with extra sound insulation and it has transformed her. Well worth the effort. We also fitted new clear skylights and LED lighting. We can’t wait for…

In between coronavirus lockdowns, we managed to get away for five weeks in Germany, taking the Harwich to Hook of Holland ferry and transiting the Netherlands without stopping. We visited many of our favourite haunts, including the Harz Mountains where we stayed on a stellplatz at Schulenberg. We were rewarded by panoramic views with the early morning mist over the Oker reservoir. Later in the trip we visited the Moselle Valley. Our overnight pitch was set amongst the vineyards overlooking the river valley at Brauneberg. John and Sue Hughes Sunset on the Jurassic Coast, at Highlands End Holiday Park, Eype. We stayed there last September in our Hobby motorhome. Sue Munro This was on our first day out, Monday 12 April. We have our life back! We were in Norfolk on the Foxhills campsite. There was…
